    Brady - The "few thousand" was a tongue-in-cheek statement.

    Petorius - It's not like you have to enter every race your bike is eligible for because that alone could easily get up to $400+ per race weekend just in entry fees. I suggest starting small and building from there. Enter one race each day and increase participation at your comfort level. Biggest thing I've seen that adds unnecceary costs are the people who are running, say, 19's (any bike) thinking they need new tires every weekend.

    Re: School me on contingencies

    LRRS makes 3 races/weekend seem like the magic number. => $180/wknd, given current costs.

    My SV has been very inexpensive. I considered the Hawk route after watching. But ultimately I think the SV was an even cheaper route.

    Re: School me on contingencies

    I'm thinking 5 races per weekend including GTL. May have to dial it back to 4 per weekend

    Nobody willing to discuss the cheapest way to race?

    wrong Chris, there are at least three in the thread so far, and one is a hot chick (or so I've heard)

    Re: School me on contingencies

    smutty, you know that most contingency require a minimum of 8-10 bikes in your wave? your unlimited races that you got podiums were only 5 bikes at most. you might not be getting as much contingency as you think.

    Racing is not cheap. You can make it cheaper but it is not cheap.
    Yes for most of us who have the bike, the gear etc it is even cheaper.

    There is no limit on how expensive you can make it.

    I don't wanna do the math of what it cost me this year but I estimate around $8000. Mind you I had everything it needed to race. I just did few more tracks and usually 4-5 races a weekend.

    Benchracing is the cheapest way...

    Realistically, you gotta figure around $1,000/LRRS Race weekend (tires, race gas, entry fees, transportation costs, food, camping, transponder, eject helmet removal system, etc., etc....) I took off a year from road racing to play in the dirt with NETRA and probably get 5x more "bang for my buck" than trying to road race. Figure around $200-250, if just I race an event and another $100-150 if my son also races.
